Saturday served as a major celebration for the Wabash County YMCA, as the organization had the grand opening for its new Rainforest Park, a play place designed for children ages 3-10.


A near capacity crowd was on hand to watch Cadence Waldron do the ribbon cutting honors.


Children packed the small room which formerly encompassed the YMCA’s teen room, to take part in the two-decked jungle-themed play room and rock climbing wall. There’s even a make believe water puddle on the ground which gives off a ripple effect when children run across it.
